PFC Involvement- Current

In my experience to develop this complex and create a sustainable Community Hub with new, non-football revenue streams will require PFC to strongly upgrade it’s administration and add serious resources. I offer my expertise to make these changes happen.

After more than twenty years of very ordinary Football performances by PFC, despite some happy highlights, I have the full support of the above CAPTAINS GROUP, Past Players, PFC Members, Club sponsors and others to use the above experience to help lift PFC back to its rightful position among the strongest of the WAFL Clubs. I ask for your support to achieve this.

Nominee: Daryle MANN

Dear Members,

I have had the privilege of serving the Perth Football Club as Club President for the last two years. It is with great pleasure that I submit my nomination to you.

During my time as President, I have worked with the Board and office staff to build a strong foundation for future growth. I am about team and community, two values that are seeing us develop a culture of success.

I am committed to ensuring the PFC is a strong stand-alone member of the WAFL. Off-field, I am dedicated to working tirelessly to guarantee the PFC is successful, developing a strong community.

I am a Financial Adviser and have successfully run my own Practice in South Perth for 20 years. My financial knowledge and experience has helped the Club grow to the solid financial position we are in today.

One of the first projects I commissioned on becoming President was a broad review into the Club. Known as the Cumberland Review, it was the catalyst for much of our improvement in 2018. This review was the foundation for the development of the Club’s Strategic Plan. Some of our focuses have been:


Full support of our Football Department, with an emphasis shifting to developing players from within our Zones. A noticeable improvement in Club culture and commitment saw us have our best season in decades. We are now in a strong position for 2019.


I have continued the work started by our late President, Vince Pendal. I am committed to our new facility and, with the help of our CEO and Board, have secured $4 million of funding. The relationships we have built are essential in securing further funding.


2019 will bring a significant focus on engaging and growing our local communities, especially with our local schools. For the longevity of our Club, there is a need to increase our community relationships. Our engagement programs (Coaching Academy, Outside the Locker Room) have proven successful.


This year we will make another profit. I am focussed on ensuring our club remains financially responsible.

I request your support to continue the progress we have achieved.

Thank you,

Daryle Mann
